WAKE-UP CALL – THE 3,420th – AT 8:59 A.M. ET: We know that North Korea is brazen, but this is unprecedented. And we should take it very seriously. From Fox:
North Korea, already gearing up for yet another nuclear test, has posted a bizarre online video depicting New York under an apparent missile attack with "We Are the World" serving as a soundtrack.
The video is here.
The three-minute video posted on YouTube on Saturday was released by Uriminzokkiri, which distributes news and propaganda from North Korea’s state-run media. It features a young man in a dream sequence in which he sees himself aboard a North Korean space shuttle launched into orbit by the same type of rocket Pyongyang successfully launched in December. A densely populated city, which is shrouded in a U.S. flag, is then depicted to the tune of “We Are the World,” the charity single recorded in 1985.
“Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing,” reads a caption translated from Korean. “It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze with the fire started by itself.”
The video concludes with the young man saying his dream will “surely” come true. As of early Tuesday, it had been viewed more than 60,000 times.
“Despite all kinds of attempts by imperialists to isolate and crush us … never will anyone be able to stop the people marching toward a final victory,” a final caption reads.
COMMENT: This is the product of some very sick minds. But we must always remember that sick minds sometimes gain control of nation states. One sick mind, in control of a nuclear arsenal, can make Adolf Hitler look like a minor aggressor.
North Korea not only possesses weapons of mass destruction, it exports military technology to other lovelies, like Iran. It is an exceedingly dangerous country. And yet, it has been permitted to develop nuclear weapons and intercontinental missiles, receiving only slaps on the wrist. Maybe this video should be shown at the White House daily to remind our leaders that the whole world isn't Denmark.
